Mission Against Terror Goes Open Beta Sept. 19 after Explosive Closed Beta Assault
TORONTO, ON September 16, 2010--Wicked Interactive, a leading North American MMO
publisher, today announced that after an explosively successful closed beta, which
Beta Gratis awarded an 8/10 for its gameplay, the free-to-play, online first-person
shooter Mission Against Terror(M.A.T.) begins open beta on Sunday, September 19
at 3:00pm EDT sharp.
CLOSED TO OPEN:
Wicked Interactive's SUBA Games platform (www.subagames.com), best known to shooter
fans for such titles as Cross Fire, will be hosting M.A.T. at: http://mat.subagames.com.
The open beta allows gamers to be the first in North America to experience this
exciting new title, which has been updated and enhanced thanks to the helpful input
of everyone who participated in the closed beta, which ends this week.
"We have been working with Wicked Interactive from the beginning on M.A.T. Their
team and dedication to make this game competitive is top-notch," said Stephen Tucker,
CEO, World Online Gaming League (WOGL). "The game has been well-received by our
community. We look forward to moving into competition with M.A.T as we turn the
corner to open beta."
"The M.A.T. closed beta community did a wonderful job," added Sam Ho, Director of
Wicked Interactive. "For gamers that did not get a beta key, the wait is finally
over! We welcome all gamers out there to join us in enjoying the new modes, new
maps and other goodies we've added."
The highlight of the open beta patch is the debut of one of MAT’s most popular game
modes, the Ghost Mode. Ghost Mode is a spin-off of the highly popular Bomb Mode.
In Ghost Mode, one team plays as the ghosts who are highly translucent figures that
are difficult to see but are restricted to melee attacks only, and they’re out to
bomb key locations around the world. The other team is identical to that of Bomb
Mode--soldiers with anti-ghost training who are out to drive the ghosts back and
save these locations from being bombed.
Along with Ghost Mode are two brand new maps to keep the white-knuckled action of
MAT fresh for the Closed Beta veterans. Pearl Research Institute is the first of
the two, taking place in a research institute filled with highly confidential information
about their origins that the ghosts want to destroy.
Tianshan Base is the second new map, consisting of a tactical training facility
for elite soldiers at a secret location somewhere in the Antarctic where soldiers
are given special anti-ghost training. The stakes couldn't be higher as the ghosts
are out to keep their origin a mystery and prevent the training of new soldiers
in the fight against them.
Complementing Ghost Mode and the new maps are brand-new items. These include various
clothing options that will be available in the item shop. Players can also look
forward to a handy C4 Tool Clamp that will speed up the act of diffusing the bomb.
Weapon aficionados will love the new weapons to test out on the battlefield as well.
The P90, the M249, a Flying Tigers edition MP5, an engraved XM1014, and the lethal
Broadsword make their debut for open beta.
M.A.T. is set in a fictional time not far from our own, pitting two teams against
each other all around the world. From the male civilian with a vengeance to a war-torn
female soldier with something to prove, characters from all walks of life come together
to fight for a common goal.
Gamers looking for a serious shooter will be glad to know that M.A.T. was the only
first- person shooter game good enough to be sanctioned for tournament play in 2009
by the China Electrical Gaming Committee, a nationwide online gaming tournament
organizer that is part of the All-China Sports Federation.

site or via the links provided by the game's affiliate partners, beginning Sunday,
September 19 (3:00 pm EDT): http://mat.subagames.com
